Having stayed in every sort of accommodation imaginable worldwide from the immaculate to the appalling, Singgahsana is our version of the ideal home away from home.
As avid art appreciators and owners of an art gallery, we attempt to infuse Singgahsana with our touch of Sarawak Style. Our guests will know that they are in exotic Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo when they awake each morning to a room filled with unique local decor. Artefacts collected from the 30 or more ethnic tribes of Sarawak adorn the common area. Even the ubiquitous lamps of your room have been cleverly made out of utilitarian baskets and the floor covered with rattan and bark mats.
Travel photographs decorate each wall bringing sweet memories of the many destinations we have travel to.
Regular travels abroad have made us appreciate our home even more. Sarawak's great diversity both in its peoples and its nature makes it totally unique. But above all these, our Bornean home is exceptionally special because of its 'sickeningly' warm hospitality as aptly put by a friend and regular visitor to Sarawak.
We hope to have the opportunity to make your stay in Kuching a good one.
